Otakukini is a monthly manga and anime subscription box. Each month you can expect to receive a themed assortment of either one of two subscription plans. The first being the Champion which has 4-6 items and is $24.95 with reductions for longer subscription terms. The second is the Ultimate which has 7-9 items and costs $45 a month with reductions for longer subscriptions as well.
Check out the unboxy box video
I mention in the video this is the Champion Box… it is NOT. This is the Ultimate Box!
Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside Otakukini.
Everything that we received in our “Assassin” themed Otakukini Subscription Box.
What an awesome selection of items!
So what is all this stuff?
Our box insert. It’s a pamphlet that details everything that we received and why it was included in the Assassin Box
Hunter X Hunter Kilua Collectible Card
One of the main characters in the Hunter X Hunter manga series, this collector card is super cool! It’s transparent and a durable plastic! Killua is… you guessed it an Assassin in the series and rides a skateboard!
Known in Japan as Katekyo Hitman Reborn! This manga focuses on a young boy who finds out that he is next in line to becoming the boss of a major mafia family
I know he is holding a gun and all but he’s pretty cute! This is one of the cool rubber sort of keychains and thus is durable and lightweight!
One of the all time most popular anime / manga series ever – Naruto! Now you can have your own little Naruto Chibi Figure
There are 6 different figures in the set
But that’s OUR little cutie Naruto!
Here he is standing up! We’ll be putting this in Oliver’s room with our other collectible figures
Assassination Classroom Koro-Sensei Lemon Candy
These tasty lemon candies are a sweet treat from the Assassination Classroom manga and anime series
They look a lot like a lemon and are very yummy! There were about ten in the bag.
Rurouni Kenshin Volume 1
We are super stoked to have received this! A LOVE story in the midst of all of these Otaku items!
Clearly it isn’t just a love story… there is also some assassin action in here as well!
We’ve wanted to read this for a while and now we have our excuse!
So glad we received the first volume! This way we can start right from the beginning!
Just one of the pages of the Rurouni Kenshin Manga
Naruto Shippuden Volume 3 Uncut Version
This is the entire third volume in it’s uncut entirety. Of course being an anime / manga subscription box they had to include a little anime for us! This item was only available in the ultimate subscription box
This volume contains the 9-13th episodes. And since Naruto is an anime about the shinobi it fits into the “Assassination” theme of this subscription box!
Assassination Classroom Poster
Koro Sensei was once the greatest assassin of all time. Sometimes his happy yellow face changes with his mood… you can see them all here on this one Assassination Classroom poster!
So in summary
We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation.
The Otakukini is a great subscription box for the anime or manga lover in your life (even if it’s you). This subscription box was packed full of great items and we love that it’s themed! The presentation is good, everything arrives exactly as it should. The quality is awesome. We love that we received a full volume of Naruto and the little figure and keychain are adorable! Curation is fantastic! The theme worked perfectly with the items included in this box and we really love how they brought it all together!
As far as box economy this was the Ultimate Subscription Box and costs $45 and while we couldn’t find all of the prices the items alone that we could find prices for totalled $77.50! So we definitely think this is a great deal!
